	string name


Type: System..::.String
the name of the parser

Return Value

a parser for that name


The parser returned is guaranteed to return Symbols and SymbolLists that conform to this alphabet.

Every alphabet should have a SymbolTokenzation under the name 'token' that uses the symbol token characters to translate a string into a SymbolList. Likewise, there should be a SymbolTokenization under the name 'name' that uses symbol names to identify symbols. Any other names may also be defined, but the behaviour of the returned SymbolTokenization is not defined here.

A SymbolTokenization under the name 'default' should be defined for all sequences, that determines the behavior when printing out a sequence. Standard behavior is to define the 'token' SymbolTokenization as default if it exists, else to define the 'name' SymbolTokenization as the default, but others are possible.
